Film review: 'Incredibles 2'

Review: 'The Seagull'

A tale of unrequited love and unfulfilled aspirations, Anton Chekhov's bitterly tragic comedy gets an enjoyable -- if mostly unremarkable -- adaptation, boosted by strong performances from its spectacular cast.

Film review: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Providing the origin story of roguish smuggler Han Solo, the film feels like the result of its writers being handed a checklist of events they had to include, and their job was simply to create a narrative that could connect them. The results are messy and uneven.

Brady Jandreau, playing a loosely fictionalized version of himself, brings a piercing authenticity to a story about the elemental conflict that arises when the very thing that makes a person who they are might also be their undoing.

Film review: 'Deadpool 2'

You know the sequel doesn't measure up to the original hit film when even the fourth wall-breaking protagonist calls out the lazy writing.
